…when your team is going through a rough patch you look to your top players to get you out of it and that’s exactly what’s happened the last two games. Rangers got to be feeling real good going into their crucial match-up against Pens on Thursday.
…someone check the tabloids because Olivia Munn has obviously taken Richards back.
…it took until March, but Richards and Gaborik finally have the chemistry we were all hoping for (yes even me) this past off-season.
…and the guy most responsible for that chemistry is Hagelin who has just taken over the last two games.
…nice role reversal by Biron tonight, who has been putting the Rangers behind the eight ball lately with some shoddy first period goaltending, but tonight he kept the Rangers in it early.
…Zuccarello isn’t going to stick around long if he’s going to take bad penalties like that. Completely changed the momentum of the game at the time.
…love that Stralman has the hip check in his repertoire. Don’t see that too often in the NHL these days.
…power play sucks again.
…Boyle and Fedotenko were shot blocking monsters.
…nice to see the struggling Girardi with a +2.
…tough game for Stepan with a terrible giveaway and just 12:58 of ice time.
…if I told you before the game that a Ranger defenseman’s line tonight was going to be +2, 2 shots on goal, 1 blocked shot and 3 hits in 21:54 of ice time I bet you wouldn’t have guessed Bickel.
…off tomorrow than huge game against Penguins.
